Bought a 2000 180s a month ago, guy I bought it from said it needs fluid for steering. I’m guessing hydrolic fluid? He showed me a clear tube under the console but I have no idea how to do it, or check for leaks. Any ideas? Is it doable by myself, or do I pay the 160 an hour at the marina? And risk them saying I need this and that oh and that needs to be replaced.

thanks for any info

Mine have ( had ) for the Sea Star Steering a small cap on the top of the helm starboard side . Small black cap in the pic . The clear tubes under the helm should be drain tubes from the cup holders .
This pic is from my previous RCW .

No, you cannot bleed the steering yourself. Someone has to turn steering wheel & add fluid with someone at the bleed valves at the engine.
